  • "We found the Dutch Blues holiday cottage fantastic, second to none."

    The cottage is superb, a real home from home and had everything you could ever need. You can’t beat excellence, we would definitely recommend the holiday cottage highly and hope to return.

  • "Loved our stay just wish we had booked for longer."

    The cottage was very well presented and immaculately cleaned for our arrival. The hosts were brilliant with us and can’t wait to come back again. it’s an ideal base for days out, and then you come back to a well equipped home with a nice area outside to sit and enjoy the evening sun. A hidden gem is the best way to describe the place and its owners are lovely people. Many thanks Mark and Jaki

    Thank you both so very much for your amazing feedback. We aim to please and keep high standards throughout for our guests. We like to make our cottages a homely base for everyone who stays. It goes without saying that some people like to go out and about and just need a peaceful place to lay their heads and some people like to just chill in the cottages away from the stresses of their hectic lifestyles so we try to cater for all requirements. once again we cannot thank you enough for your lovely lovely comments. To say it means a lot is an understatement ! kindest regards the Chapmans Property Owner

  • "Absolutely fabulous 4 night stay."

    Dutch Blues is a converted stable that makes for a surprisingly spacious and very comfortable holiday home. The lovely owners (who we understand are retiring soon) have really thought about what you might need and just about everything you could want is there. Little things like a small bottle of cooking oil, washing up liquid and some milk in the fridge were really appreciated. The walk in shower was smashing and the hot water was really hot. The bedroom was roomy and the bed comfy. The position is great, being just a few miles from Malton which is a splendid town packed full of delightful foodie venues. Fabian Poirot's macarrons are not to be missed! And it's only about a 25 minute drive to great walks on the North York Moors and a little less to Castle Howard. We would have been very happy to have stayed for much longer and we whole heartedly recommend both Dutch Blues and the area as a whole.

    We are delighted with your wonderful feedback and your lovely comments about the area in general. We try to make it home from home, having ourselves visited some cottages whilst on holiday and finding that quite a few were not ones that we would want to go back to....we aimed to want our guests to be comfortable and happy here and even want to return, never say never ! lovely to meet you take care and thanks again for taking time to leave feedback Hilary and Alan Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean, very tidy, well laid out and very comfortable."

    We didn't want for anything except, perhaps a couple of fans - one in the sitting room and one in the bedroom as it was so hot. Unfortunately the courtyard was not as we expected, as it was very small and when I read the information I thought there was a garden. Unfortunately we never got to sit in the courtyard, because the people who were in the end house, with a garden, chose to sit in the courtyard a lot of the time. We therefore could not sit out there with our dogs. We did feel that the cottage really wasn't suitable for dogs, certainly our two dogs, but perhaps more suitable for small dogs, bearing in mind that every time you wanted to let the dogs out to do their business you had to walk down the lane to allow this to happen. As for walks, which I was led to believe by the write up on the cottages were nearby, this we found was not the case. You could only walk down the lane with the dogs on leads as there was nowhere to let them off to run naturally. The only time we would take them for a proper walk was by taking the car and finding an area that was big enough for them to run and have a good walk in a more secure area, where there weren't cars. The owners of the cottages were really lovely and very welcoming and kept the cottages in an extremely good condition. Unfortunately for us, we will not go there again, due to the reasons above. Not a place on my tick list to go back to.

    Thank your for your feedback. The courtyard is communal with my other two properties and the advert will be updated to reflect this. Dogs of all sizes are welcome of course, and there are many dog walking areas in the local district, I have now included information at the property regarding local facilities for dogs. We are thrilled that you found us so welcoming and that you enjoyed the property, as we do take great care and pride in it. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday and the cottage was very well equipped one of the best we have stayed in."

    The only down side for us was the local pub within walking distance (which is something we always look for) called "The Bay Horse" only served food one evening a week on a Tuesday which is Pie Night and they also have very limited opening times. This meant we had to drive further afield. So this would prevent us going back even though the cottage was really nice.

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback. The above pub offers a lunch menu daily 12 - 2pm and there is an food available Tuesday and Friday nights between 5 - 7.30pm. Property Owner

    I doubt if you could find anything that the cottage lacked as it was so well equipped. It does have a hairdryer - wish Sykes mentioned this in their cottage details as I keep taking a hairdryer to cottages for no reason! There is a pleasant sitting out area in front of this cottage for the use of all guests. Allocated parking is available for each cottage. The friendly owners live on site and respect your privacy but are available if you need them. This area has some beautiful scenery and easy access to lovely day trips. Highly recommended.
